23rd – 30th November 2019
CAPTURE EARTH is an annual, exclusive wildlife photography experience with the aim of giving our clients access to four of the greatest wildlife photographers in the world today, in very small groups, in a beautiful African location.
CAPTURE EARTH 2019 – THE LOCATION
SANCTUARY OLONANA, MASAI MARA, KENYA Sanctuary Olonana is an award winning, exceptional luxury safari lodge set on a private stretch of the Mara River in the heart of Kenya’s most famous game reserve, the Masai Mara, at the foot of the impressive Siria Escarpment, close to the border of Tanzania.
Featuring 14 glass-sided suites, Sanctuary Olonana is inspired by the Masai Mara’s breath-taking natural wonders, an abundance of wildlife, and a dramatic river which runs right past its forest setting. Game drives, cultural visits, bush dinners, sundowners, Olonana makes for a wonderful base for our week-long adventure.
CAPTURE EARTH 2019 – THE PHOTOGRAPHERS
DAVID LLOYD, PETER DELANEY, MARINA CANO and JAN VAN DER GREEF are all experts in their fields, leading fine art wildlife photographers, film makers, conservationists and experienced speakers. Between them they hold many accolades in the world of wildlife photography, including BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year, and have released countless books of their work. The event is hosted by Capture Earth owner JONATHAN CHRITCHLEY, himself a noted fine art photographer who is included in the Sunday Times 100 Greatest Photographers of the World.
During Capture Earth there will be game drives every morning and late afternoon. The vehicles are specially adapted Toyota Land Cruisers with open tops and three rows of seats behind the driver. Each vehicle will hold a fully trained driver/warden, one of our guest photographers and 3 clients, each with a row of seats to themselves, giving the ultimate in viewing possibilities. There are bean bags supplied with each vehicle. Each client will have the opportunity to travel with each photographer on several occasions. In the evening there will be sundowners served out in the bush before heading back to the lodge.There will also be a hot air balloon photographysession, a chance to view Kenya from above without disturbing the widlife below.
CAPTURE EARTH TALKS
Every day during Capture Earth there will be talks by the guest photographers and animal experts, using the seminar facilities at the camp, and with slideshows, demos and Q & A sessions. Each talk will last approximately 1 hour 30 minutes with a 15 minute break half way through. There will also be private one to one talks with each guest photographer for every client.
